Defence call out laws

The passage of laws to make it easier for Governments to use the army within Australia is a dangerous step for our country, Greens Justice spokesperson Nick McKim said.

“Armies are not primarily trained for policing situations. They are trained to fight wars,” Senator McKim said.

“It is police forces that are trained primarily to maintain order and to keep the peace domestically in our country.”

“This legislation further blurs the lines between police forces and the Australian Defence Force, and is certain to be abused by authoritarian governments in the future.”

“It is disappointing that Labor and the LNP have stitched up a dangerous deal to make it easier for the army to be deployed against Australian people in their own country.”
